 Very pleasant campsite. No camper vans or caravans so air good. Extremely helpful owner, small shop open a couple of hours in the morning and afternoon.

Showers clean and very hot water. Toilets very clean. Good value pricing.

Close to Holt which is a lovely North Norfolk village. Plan to go back again next year. Recommend this site.

Fire pits and Bbq available plus wood to buy.

Reviewer: S Allen 1 review from this member

 This was our 1st time visiting this site on a recommendation from a friend.

The site could not have been cleaner, the owner could not have been more helpful and the facilities could not have been better.

Great location and base for exploring. We are looking forward to many more visits.

 A really good campsite, especially for families. We went with a dog and stayed on the dedicated dog friendly part of the site. There is a lovely 15 minute walk from the site to an English Heritage castle, which is a bonus for doggie people.

The site has a silence after 10pm policy, which was more or less adhered to, although there were people playing loud music from their car stereo before that time, which was a shame. We found the site to be quite noisy, especially around the childrenís play area. Itís perfect for families with kids, but maybe look elsewhere if you want peace and quiet.

There are fire pits available to borrow and firewood in the well stocked campsite shop. It was good to have games and books available to borrow too. The toilet, shower and washing up blocks were extremely clean.

As they say on their website, they are a working farm so if you have coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance, itís worth checking if they are doing the harvest that week as the gluten was flying around freely.

 I've stayed here many times and introduced family and friends here too; all loved it.

It's close enough to the coast for convenience but apart enough to feel really relaxed on site.

Facilities are always spotless. Pin drop silence at curfew except for the owl.

Children have some wooden forts etc. To play on and lots of walks for dogs.

Good shop fair prices and books and games to borrow.

Its definitely my favourite camp site in N Norfolk - no noisy huge groups, no caravans, just a great camp site to relax in.

 So relaxing. Weíve stayed here a few times, itís by far the best farm site weíve stayed on, although I hate to recommend as it will get too busy.

The facilities are good, clean, spacious showers that are cleaned twice a day. Fresh eggs, a book and games loan, no clubhouse, just the sound of the owls and nature every night.

Itís so good to know Emma is on hand to help and gently remind guests thereís a no noise policy after 10.

Always a lovely welcome and a relaxing break with our dog, leaving the children (grown up) at home

Reviewer: Beepee Camping 3 reviews from this member

 This is a lovely tents-only site; great for not being looked down on by enormous caravans and campervans. Pitches are level and generously spaced. Plenty of space for activities and a simple but well used children's play area. We had one of the electric hook up pitches which worked fine.

The showers are spacious and along with the whole site, kept very clean. The washing up area is covered and well lit when it gets dark outside. Water in showers, washing up and wash basins always came out nice and hot.

This is one of the few sites we have used where the "no noise after 10pm" rule was strictly adhered to. A wonderfully friendly reception added to a feeling of being welcome and appreciated rather than just another booking.

Unless you are looking for on-site entertainment and a club house, I would thoroughly recommend Baconsthorpe Meadows as a proper no nonsense, traditional, but not basic campsite.

 What an amazingly clean and tidy site. Facilities are clean regularly and very well maintained.

Pitches are level and the hedging is a fantastic way to add privacy to your pitch!

Very quiet after 9 pm and the only noises heard in the night was the owls!

Reviewer: Lady Ramoska 1 review from this member

 This is the kind of site where children sing in the showers and dads wear Boden pyjama bottoms with wellies. Emma is a fantastic host. Nothing is too much trouble from your first tentative email through to the end of your stay. She even shows you to your pitch. In our case in the rain after a six hour journey.

Holt is the major draw for us (Bakers and Larners, proper green grocers and a wonderful bakers) but Sheringham and Cromer are nearby for old fashioned seaside fun. If you have a car there is plenty to do. Norwich is only an hour away when the rain comes (great shops and covered market).

Free fire pits, lovely hot showers and a simple but well stocked little shop on site. I love the fact you can buy eggs individually at 20p a go. Itís the small things that make all the difference when you are camping and when our air beds developed holes Emma was able to supply not one, nor two but three new air beds for us immediately at a reasonable £10 each. Phew.

This is our second visit and we will definitely be back. This site is perfect for young families and outdoor loving teens. (And dogs of course). Just wish we had stayed long enough to sample the friendly fish and chip van when it rocked up on the Thursday evening.

Reviewer: Coogee 4 reviews from this member

 This was our first time at this site, an experience we will hopefully repeat. Granted this was the World Cup Quarter Final weekend which may have effected the numbers visiting but from what we could tell, even with a full site there would have been plenty of space per unit.

The owners are lovely and extremely helpful (they rang round child friendly pubs to see who had the football on). The site atmosphere is calm yet playful and happy.

Loads to visit within a few minutes, or plenty of space for cricket/ football/ frisbee etc on site without worrying about annoying fellow campers. Many good pubs and restaurants nearby although Holt can be a bit pricey and a few I would not take excited or tired children to.

Toilets and showers were clean and adequate with a good area for washing up too. We did not use the freezer but did see there was one. Fire pits to borrow and logs to buy at a reasonable price made the evenings a joy.

All in all, a big hit with our family.

Reviewer: Jaxc75 1 review from this member

 Such a lovely small quiet site with very helpful hosts. Perfectly adequate with nice clean toilet and shower facilities. Has a separate side for guests with dogs.

You have free use of the metal drum things to have a campfire, which is a great bonus. Plenty of space for the kids to run around and small playground area. Having been here twice now for short stays with and then without electric hook up, I would say this place is perfect for visiting the local area.

The ruins of Baconsthorpe castle makes a nice safe walk along a track from the campsite. There is a little on site shop and laundry room, even somewhere you can put your freezer blocks in if you need to refreeze them.

The nice small town of Holt is a mere 5 min drive away, the coast too is close.
